I have the java play! application. To run play application no need of a webserver like apache. But i need run my application on VPS with the domain name like www.xxx.com, do I need web server? If I have the multiple applications running on different http ports, how can i map those ports to my domain name; Example: www.xx.com---> application running on port 9000

One option is to change the port number in the Play config to 80 from 9000 and map the www.xx.com to the server's ip address. If there are more applications, a web server running on 80 can be setup to forward requests from 80 to 9000 and other ports for various URIs.
